Stop me if you’ve heard this before Laura Ingraham opened her show on Fox News Friday night with a rant dismissing the dangers of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, claiming Dr Anthony Fauci and President Joe Biden are teaming up to “keep us under their thumbs for as long as possible”

The death toll from COVID-19 in the US will be 500 over the next week000 and Donald Trump was president when most of those deaths occurred – repeatedly downplaying the severity of the crisis The case and death rate has steadily declined since Biden took office

The tenor in the Fox News ‘opinion-makers’ stable has remained the same, however, as Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson opposed meaningful measures to contain the pandemic from the start and maintained that stance throughout, so remember when you do read this

“If you’re like me, you probably think back to how it was a year ago every now and then. Think about how many things have changed in the last year. A year ago we had a booming economy We had strong boundaries and a whole host of rights and privileges that we took for granted, “lamented Ingraham

“Like the right to travel without being monitored and questioned The right to worship without restrictions The right to let your children go to school The right to speak freely on most social media platforms The right to im Park or go anywhere else without a mask or two or three on your face The right to visit loved ones in hospitals and nursing homes ”

Ingraham, who once spoke exactly like a Nazi salute at the Republican National Convention, then used a racist descriptor for COVID-19 that was popular with conservatives last year (incidentally, she later turned on “desperate liberals” for criticism responsible for their RNC hand movement ”)

“But the arrival of the Chinese virus, followed by the idiotic lockdown policies of the blue state governors and of course Donald Trump’s defeat, made America a less free, less prosperous, less optimistic America, and if you listen to Joe Biden in Michigan today “You can’t help but believe that Biden and Fauci will keep us under their thumbs for as long as possible,” complained Ingraham, referring to a speech in which Biden said he hoped everything would mostly be back by Christmas be normal

“There will always be a reason to keep things closed and let you live with less freedom. Viral Mutations! Deviations! A new strain from Africa But the virus and the data – the real science – don’t cooperate with the control freaks Now look at these graphs The number of infections, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID are falling, “said Ingraham as she reached her crescendo,

“Smart Americans see this,” she said, “And contrary to what the CDC director said this week, our citizens are not just suffering from COVID fatigue, it’s more than you see how slowly the truth is about how Biden and his company plan to change America forever using the virus ”

Ingraham never said what the Biden administration was actually going to do with America if they changed it
